We've actually seen wackier houses built by and for Disney designers, but La Canada-Flintridge's Graystone Manor is certainly not un-wacky. The house was originally built in 1937, but starting in 1971, Disney theme park designer Robert F. McDonnell and his family spent decades completely remaking it. According to an LA Times story from 2001, when the family decided to sell, "The McDonnells wanted to create the house ? in the storybook style that has entertained millions of visitors at the Disney parks. Patty is an expert in various crafts. Robert is currently a consultant on residential design." Graystone sits on a quarter of an acre and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, stained glass, wrought iron hardware, two-car garage, and "an English Pub style wet bar with custom carvings all around." Asking price is $1.599999 million.
